Chief Forecaster's Commentary

Latest model data indicates that the worst of the forecast rain will now miss Essex. There is still some uncertainty with timing, but the heaviest of the rain is set to arrive this afternoon and into the evening across Southern districts. It it possible that Northern Essex may stay dry until after dark.
